    Nice.

    Just bought that gun. The women were able to dry fire it more easily than all the other hand guns available to them. Friend tested it for us and reported back a very accurate gun but with some snap in the recoil. So training and practice is needed for us.

    Ruger is going to sell us some more if the women here can handle the recoil. But more important I think is the light weight not slowing down deployment for that first shot. And not leaving it behind because of weight. Overall a better weapon for us compared to our earlier attempts at getting something everyone can shoot confidently.

    Old age also gets no respect from tyrants.
    Longevity has little meaning without freedom.

    I like the concept, the layout, and the wording, but the arm and the hand in that shot just doesn't seem that old to me.

    Good work!

    I think a well worn, used pistol/revolver, should go along with this one

    The one used has not even had the cylinder moved much

    Old age...

    Like the poster very much, Oleg! And as usual w/yr work, succinct and to the point. I'm not so young myself, and one thing that occurred to me on "first look" was, "A few liver spots would have been appropriate."

    "That model's hands look like he is no more than 40."

    Possibly an advertising shot to which Oleg put a caption?

    Good, anyhow.

    It's a pretty hand.

    I'll ask like the guys do when you post a pretty girl, holding a gun.

    Who is that pretty handed fellow. LOL

    Except for a few more noticeable scars on my right hand that hand doesn't look a lot different than my hand. 6 decades down and almost to 7, I think I qualify as a senior citizen. Some of us just age well.

    I agree with Harley, a well-worn S&W would be more appropriate. Aside from that tough, it's great.

    I think the old hands on a new gun makes a nice contrast. It also shows people can start taking self defense seriously at any age. Perhaps having a number of old hands holding guns of a variety of styles and ages would make the point better.

    It is great as it is, take my comments with as much weight as you wish.

    Just recently, I saw an old, grey haired codger buying a similar gun in a nearby store...

    BTW, if you don't want to age, exercise a lot. I've seen a few videos of seventy+ men who supposedly train with weights about seven hours a week, and they look to be at most in their mid fifties.

    Yep that weight room is where all need to be... I am one of those at 68 who hit it 3 times min. a week...

    My body overall is not as strong as I was in early days, but the legs are still in great shape...

    I push close to 500 most of the time and a couple of reps of 500...

    But my main work out for them in a 40 degree leg press machine, is starting at 270, 10 times then 360, 10 times and finish with 450, 10 times...If I feel good, I will push 500, 5 times just to be able to say I can still do it.

    I am pretty good sized at 6-2, 247...

    Jeez. 247? I'm 6'3", 165 pounds.....

    My problem is, that I don't like eating and spending money on food, meaning, I doubt I'll ever gain much muscle...

    My body was thin when young, but with working out and age I have gained some weight, I would be better off at 200/210 for sure...

    You are way thin, my son is 6-4 and 200 very fit and thin...middle 40's

    200 was my weight for 20 years... I am ready to go on a diet, quitting eating is not in the picture though

    Cutting back, is a good idea and it would save money

    I consume a lot of cals a day 60% of my diet is protein...Plus gallons of water...

    If you cook and eat a lot of pasta and good grains it would help you gain some weight, but you must exercise...

    Regards
